I love this time of year in London.
Over the next eight weeks there is no better place to be, and no better place to party, in the world.
I’ve organized events and experiences here for 20 years and there’s one thing for certain about Londoners – in the next two months they’ll be living life to the full.
The English summer season is now open with a vengeance, and the next two months is about partying yourself out before taking off for summer to either rest up and recharge, or keep the party going under the sun.
At Osmosis Events this is our busiest time of the year, and our intention is to shock you with the experiences we create, the spellbinding customer service we deliver, and with unprecedented access to all the best arenas, areas, gigs, festivals and enclosures, ensuring you have the time of your life.
Here’s what there is to look forward to – call me any time for unparalleled access to all the below – I’m on 07971 233 333.
The next seven days is one of the biggest weeks of music and partying to hit the capital in years.
If you’re still peeling yourself off the floor from yesterday’s Isle Of Wight festival, I salute you – and bring good news. Most of the action won’t be starting until the weekend so you have a few days to reassemble yourself!
Guns’N’Roses (original line-up) play two gigs back to back at the Olympic Stadium this 16th/17th, and the Stone Roses play Wembley on 17th. The following day sees two epic sporting events, with both the cricket and polo seasons climaxing at the same time in London and Berkshire – The Cartier Polo at The Guards Club and the final of the ICC Champions Cup at The Oval.
Take your pick – whether its Manc rock that floats your boat or the most elitist day out you can imagine, we can cater for your needs.
I pride myself at operating all ends of the spectrum!
There are epic after parties going on for all the above events – call me to learn more.
By next week you’ll be nicely warmed up for Royal Ascot, Queens Club tennis, Celine Dion at the O2, Robbie Williams at the Olympic Stadium…
Or - head to Somerset to see Radiohead, Ed Sheeran and the Foo Fighters headline Glastonbury…
All VIP, obv. Not a queue for the loos and not a dodgy shower in sight.
What could be nicer at the end of June than something slightly more chilled out?
Finish work early on either 28th/29th and head down to Wembley Stadium to see Adele play live.
Following that you can decamp to Berkshire to watch the Royal Regatta at Henley for a few days, before heading back into town over the weekend for the start of the British Summertime Festival in Hyde Park, featuring Green Day, Justin Bieber, Kings of Leon, Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks.
By now you’re fully primed. Locked in and loaded for the final stretch.
The first week of July sees Wimbledon begin (I once went every day for two weeks – never again!), or if you feel like something quieter, the Hampton Court flower show. In a similar vein of British sophistication, what could be more civilised than prime seats for the England v South Africa at the home of cricket, Lords? Maybe attend the cricket Thursday Friday and Saturday, before we shuttle you on taxi-bikes over to Twickenham to see U2 live, one of the biggest spectacles in rock?
And speaking of spectacles, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and the Lumineers play Hyde Park on the Sunday.
Remember call me anytime to discussed access all areas - 07971 233 333.
By half way through July, everyone’s party muscles are bronzed, shall we say well-oiled, and in peak condition. The chiseled features of any mid-season are out in force and the music ramps up. One of the my all-time favorite events, and one of the summer’s most demanding workouts, Secret Garden Party is followed by Silverstone and The Open.
Call me for unparalleled access to any or all of the above – and I mean unparalleled.
Admittedly by now you deserve a break! Why not let us organize your jet to the Riviera for a few days off, before returning, resurgent for the final furlong? On the way back it depends how you’re feeling… You can stop off for shopping in Paris and front-row seats for the final stages of the Tour de France, or you can rave for three days solid at Tomorrowland in Belgium… But it’s not quite time just yet to decamp for the long rest all sane human beings grant themselves from early August to mid-September.
It’s time for the home straight.
Adele returns to Wembley for her last Wembley dates of Summer on 28th/29th July. If you haven’t yet, you have to.
By this point she should really feel at home there after six nights and playing to over half a million people. And thus by our reckoning be in full voice… As if she ever isn’t.
The test series will be really heating up by this stage and the third five-day outing sees England and the Proteas returning to London at the Kia Oval. This is a speciality of mine and of course the obligatory night out in central London will be all laid on care of Osmosis. It’s home turf for us so prepare to be shocked. This is life on the other side.
Lastly, my favourite way to sign off the season Sees Wilderness Festival return to Combury Park. Party harder and consumer culture in a way you never have before.
It’s inspirational, sexy and great brain-food for your time on the beach. And you can get ravy-gravy if you want it.
It’s time to go. You’ve earned it and so have I.
Remember at Osmosis we care about our product and service first – ensuring you, the client gets the ultimate experience, and we keep in touch with you and hold your had as much or as little as you want us to.
It’s all about three things: Integrity – doing what we said we would do for you the client. Resilience – stamina is important when you party this hard. And intelligence – we’re in the know so you don’t have to be.
My number for unprecendented experiences, unparalleled access and unbelievable scenes at all the above: 07971 233 333.
